Somehow I have missplaced the load suggestions you all have given in the past for loads using the high B.C. Hornady 53 grain V-Max bullets.
I am new to these bullets myself.
Its the winter "reloading" season here in SW Montana and I have a 223 Varminter that I think NEEDS to shoot this bullet.
My Rifle (Remington 700 SPS-V) has a 26" barrel and a Leupold
6.5x20 variable scope on it.
I picked this Rifle up a while back and it has only shot Berger 50 grainers to date.
These Bergers are accurate bullets, but are PRICEY, and the Hornady has a higher B.C (.290).
And I think the Prairie Dogs and Ground Squirrels should really plop when hit with these V-Max bullets - even when these Varmints are "way out there".
Any load suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Hold into the wind
